war on terror, and there is no question there are radicals in the region who will use this issue to fuel the propaganda that america is at war against islam and americans are anti-muslim in some way. so there is certainly going to be some global repercussions to the discussion that we have here, but, mona is absolutely right. this isn't about them. this is about us and who we are, and the fact that we don't allow these kinds of, you know, mainstream islamaphobic, these religious bigotries to actually define our laws or mayor our decisions for us. >> the imam said last night that, seeing what has happened, that he would, if he could go back in time, he wouldn't have chosen to build the center near ground zero. take a listen to what he had to say. >> given what you know now, would you have built? >> as i mentioned it, this story is not new. people knew about it. >> but given what you know now, would you have said, listen, let's not do it there? because it sounds like you're saying, in rhett stroe respect, wouldn't have done it. >> yes. >> would you not have done it? >> yes. if i kn

will use this to manipulate public opinion. they've done it in the past. they've done it with things like the danish cartoons and all kinds of perceived slights. this is being reported all over the world. i do think there is some reality there. but the main point -- i would say the main message that i got out of that interview is that this man is genuinely a moderate and is looking for some middle ground. time and again he said i don't rule out anything. and i'm looking for a way to ease the pain of people who felt hurt. i've tried to do this because i thought it would be a peacemaking and bridge-building effort. and that really does seem to be what's motivating him. >> andy, you were on the program last night, saying you don't believe he's a moderate. did anything he say tonight change your mind? >> he has done more good for my movement tonight than 100 demonstrations have done. >> how so? >> he shot himself in the foot so badly, you'll not be able to chisel the smile off my face. >> how so? >> the whole national security thing. that's a veiled threat. he's saying you make me move and gu
